Politics are growing more interesting
as . tbe conventions draw nigh.
."Whether the populists will place a
couuty tickt iu the race, or not, re
, .mains to be seen. At present iiamta
of those desirous of going to tlie kjgialn
ture are not mentioned, but for the
-county offices,' the candidates are
vowing out rapidly. On the republi
can ticket, Kelsey, Haight, Sexton,
Phillips and some others are named for
sheriff while the democratic aspirants
.are ' Phirman, Morse -and Kowler.
George Ruch, Chandler, Burget and
.Huntington, would like to face any
democrat for clerk, and Ed Martin the
present deputy is probably that man,
(though several dark horses are ready to
. make the run. It is generally conced
ed that the county coiumitaioiier
should come from .west of The Dalles,
and Captain A. 8. Blowers is mention
for the place to match some democrat
.yet unknown. ' For assessor neither
party has produced a candidate, every
body realizing that tbe lust assessment
ought to last all of us a life time. The
.republican primaries will he held on
the 28th and the democratic two weeks
i'rom today.
Senator Sherman of Ohio is not now
advocating an income tax. He is now
aid to be worth $2,000,000, saved from
his salary. Iu 1870 "Honest John"
was of different opinion. In the sen
ate then he said: "There has been t
.great deal of clamor against the Income
tax. It is tbe tame clamor Unit in
duced the parliament of England in
1816 and 1817 to repeal the Income tax

tained by principal, writers on political
economy, by the experience of Great
Britain, and that it is just, and the
most just and equitable tax that is now
levied by the Uuited States ef America,
-without exception. I propose to innke
good that promise." To which we de
aire to add that a careful pei aa) of his
speech will convince almost any one
that he kept that promise. 7
The revolution in Brazil is ended.
De Gama Monday abandoned his own
ship and took refuge In a V'Portiisese
man of war." It was the bloodiest
revolution ever fought to a glorious
close in the newspapers of America
De Gama was struck in the side by a
dinner plate last winter, and the heav

'lias been spiked ever since. The revolt

We received Wednesday a communl
cation from Mt. Hood with the above
caption. Tbe article did not bear the
author's signature, and hence went in to
the waste basket. Ever since newspa
pers were published, editors have week
after week published notices that all
commtinications must be signed, but it
seerns impossible to make the public
understand it. We do not want the
author's name for publication, but that
we may know who is the responsible
There is mention of Hon. C. W.
Pulton of Astoria as a possible candi
date for congress in this district. It
might as well be understood by our val
ley friends that one congressman and
two senators from Western Oregon is
supposed to fill her. quota, and that
.Eastern Oregon will Insist on keeplug
.Ellis or naming his successor. Mr,
1'ulton has the ability to fill any office
in the gift of the people of Oregon, but
for congress he is short in geography.
If honest Phil Metschan expects to
succeed himself he bad better get the
state money out of the Merchants Nat
ional bank in Portland and into the
state treasury. This thiug of lending
money to a Shylock institution like
tbe bauk alluded to, ' while state war
ranis are indorsed by the state treasur
er; "presented and not paid for lack of
funds," is decidedly ancient. It will
swamp Phil Metschan or any other
man who connives at it.
Most of our citizens received a postal
card from the sheriff within the past
week, stating that the happy recip
ient's taxes were so much, and that tbe
fume would be delinquent April 1st.
The amounts, of course, included the
special school tax, but even then, in
some cases it was a stunner. There is
much complaint about the inequality
of tbe assessment, and it really appeals
to have been made by guess, regardless
of properly.. 1
Senator White of California is a dem
ocrat with republican ideas, while Sen
ator David B. Hill of New York is a
democrat who advocates : republican
measures. ' White wants a tariff on
prunes and Hill wants free trade in in
comes. 1 If these be democrats, it is
time that party throws up its hands
and cries "Save me from my friends!"
According , itQ ' the Oreffonkin,' the
taxes in Multnomah county are being
paid in an ' unprecedented inauner.
That paper, with its usual sapiency re
marks that "(lines are so hard that the
tax payers have more money than they
know What to do with, and hence blow
it m for taxes. Shades of the immor
tal Dogberry ! From what depths abys
mal . was tluit prolunctily , evolved?
Hcie we arc all too hard pushed to pay
tuxets while our Portland brethren are
also so hard pushed that they fliiid it a
source, of joy to pay . their taxes, and
this, too iu the face of the fierce threat
of our big contempoaary a few weeks
ago, that Multnomah would secede if
her assessment was not reduced. It is
fortunate that hard times ' came, and
iso'madethe hearts of the taxpayers
bubble over with joy' as they warbled
up to the sherlil's ottk-e with their exu
berance of coin; and at the same time,
saved Multnomah to the common
wealth of Oregon. If any of our read
ers cannot understand this peculiar re
sult of hard times, let liim or her drop
a nickel in the Oregonian slot, and get
an explauation. '.' ' ,: : ,";
The Oregon Bimetallic. League or
ganised recently in Portland Is grow
ing so rapidly as to cause alarm to sen
ator Dolph's friends. Thei r object is to
restore silver and ill order to do d they
are bound to work, for a legislative
ticket, that is opposed to Dolph's re
election. The sentiment in Eastern
Oregon is decidedly-' In
favor of free
silver, and we do not believe a congress
man can be elected who is opposed" to
it nor for thut matter a member of
tbe legislature, if the friends of silver
see fit to make the right.

Spelling In Dreams. j ,..
That incorrect spelling may be said
to be inherent in the understanding
seems to be proved by the fact that
when bad spellers see inscriptions or
written sentences ' in their'- dreams
the words are misspelled as they
would misspell them.: A notoriously
bad speller once related ifchat he had
seen 4h a dream a great black, cat
with a collar round his neck bear

" The Working Da.ys of Different

Interesting data given by a Polish
statistician. . Orthodox Russia, with
her v numerous saints' days and secu

head of the list as the least laborious
of civilized nations.; . .

If these figures be approximately
correct, they are, to say the least of
them,, hot a little surprising, While
the orthodox Russian, who knows
his saints' calendar by heart, is the
least laborious, the Hungarian car

- One of th most remarkable of trees
or shrubs grows near some springs
about 12 miles north of Tuscarora.
It is six or seven feet high,, with a
trunk which at its base is three times
the size of an: ordinary man's wrist.
It has numberless branches and
twigs, and resembles somewhat the
barberry!. Its truly wonderful char
acteristic is its luminosity, which is
. so great that on the darkest night it
can be plainly seen a mile away. A
person standing near could read the
finest' print by its light. . .
I Its foliagej is extremely rank, and
Its leaves resemble somewhat those

is thought . to be due to a parasitic

superstition and will not come near
it even in daytim . They give it a
name which means ."witch tree."
